Joan Rivers Petite Length Jersey Knit Maxi Dress with Pockets is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Great on Model I wanted a basic black dress for warm weather I could dress up. This is a polyester dress similar to Susan Graver Liquid knit. The presentation said petite was just shorter but I found the waist was shorter as well. Could not blouson as expected so it accentuated my worst parts. This is great for thinner people, maybe size 12 and smaller.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Made for giants not petites I sized well down from my normal size. Still soooo long to be unbelievable. Wasn’t crazy about the fabric, but if the proportions were better I’d have kept it. So surprised and disappointed in this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best purchases ever! I purchased the raspberry, size xs petite, though I usually wear a small. I think I read some reviews stating that it ran large, though most said ran long and basically true to size. But it fit perfectly. Thank you to all who wrote the reviews, helped me a lot. I am 5'4" 144, short torso, long legs (petite proportions for blazers, blouses, not pants or skirts.......dresses are tricky). Somehow, this fabric, the neckline and silhouette trimmed off 15 pounds! The moveable waist band, and the shorter bodice (only .75 inches, and higher are sets, not much...)....made a big difference. The fabric really stretches, lays next to the body nicely without binding. It is substantial, but thinner than "liquid knit." but I really like it much better....more give, less stiff. But, I am sure some women like the other fabric for some things. Very grateful, just love this dress. It is so true that it was made like a jumpsuit might be made for adjustable waist and amount of blouson. I really did not think I would like the color or the fit, but it looked so good on the models. I am going to order the black. I hope, if you make petites, you consider the torso, arm length, hemming does not bother me, but I usually take a 30 inseam or longer in a wide leg pant for heels, so I do not usually need to. I would love to see more classic colors, like camel, white, iolite, reds with less orange. Thank you so much everyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Odd Sizing I recently ordered this dress in a size small -regular. The fit on the top was perfect but it was too long. I exchanged it for a petite med. The length was perfect but the top of the dress was HUGE. The armholes were so large that half of my bra was visible. I had to return it. Sadly I won't re-order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ordered two dresses First ordered in my normal size regular large but that did not work out since the dress was so long it dragged on the floor and also had a puckered seam defect so I did not "give-up" and re-ordered in size Petite large, black and it worked out just right, Iam 5'4" and do not like my maxi's to be short, I liked this dress so much I ordered two, both in black in Petite Large and now will order the pink.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Made my stomach look huge The tummy area and elastic placement makes this look frumpy and old. Got this in the black because that usually helps to cover flaws, not this time. The two stars are for the pockets. In fact the pockets are the only reason I even tried this dress. Kudos for the pockets, please include them on other maxis with no defined waist. Specifics, I’m 5’4” and the dress hit me at the top of my ankle bone. Material flowed well and the arm holes did not gap. I also appreciated the more modest neckline. I could bend over and not worry about sharing my personal business with the world.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute, But the Elastic... This is a cute, comfortable dress, and it is the perfect (petite) length on me (I am 5' 2"). But like others have said, the elastic waist is just a disaster.
